Mountain View tense following another murder

Sections of Mountain View in St. Andrew are again tense following Monday morning's fatal shooting of a man on Deanery Avenue.

The incident occurred shortly after 7 o'clock.

Residents blocked a section of Mountain View Avenue following the shooting. The road was later cleared.

Investigators say the shooting stemmed from an escalating feud between gang members from Jacques Road and Goodwich Lane.

The police believe men from nearby Back Bush are being drawn into the feud.

Senior Superintendent Victor Hamilton, commander of the Kingston Eastern police division, has sought to assure residents that the police will be maintaining a strong presence in the area to prevent another flare-up of  violence.
